Underground and Broken Hearted

When the end comes

It comes on a slow train,

With doors tightly shut

Until it comes to an all too abrupt stop,

Re-creating you as your own prison guard

Not realising that you are the only

Lonely

Soul

On this abandoned train,

Looking around for company,

For those who started the journey with you

For that special soul who made angel-like promises

You now know are lies,

All gone,

And you know,

This train ain’t moving an inch,

‘Till you too depart.

Damn, It’s over?

But it had only just begun!

    I really enjoyed how the slowly moving train could still stop abruptly. We so often think of only the fast things jarring us to a halt, but in life the speed has nothing to do with the strength of the jolt.
